of air bag inflation is a consequence
of extremely  short time in which  to

occupant and the vehicle structures
before the  occupant impacts those
structures.  This  speed  of  inflation
reduces the  risk  of serious  or life-
threatening  injuries  and  is thus  a
necessary part of air bag design.
However, the rapid air bag inflation
can also  cause injuries  which can
include  facial   abrasions,  bruises
and  broken   bones  because   the
inflation speed also  causes the air

cially if  the occupant  is positioned
excessively close to the air bag.
There is  no single speed  at which
the air  bags will  inflate. Generally,
air  bags  are   designed  to  inflate
based upon  the severity of  a colli-
sion  and  its  direction. These  two
factors determine whether the sen-
sors produce an electronic deploy-
ment/inflation signal.

inflated longer to  help provide pro-
tection   from  ejection,   especially
when used  in conjunction  with the
seat belts.
